Problems with SMF1 MIDI files

Some elder YAMAHA-keyboards interprete MIDI-events only of tracks of SMF1-Midi-files with numbers less or equal 16. If we have some notes in track 17 on channel 1 for example, these can be heard with sequencer-software on the PC, even if we use the keyboard to play the notes with a MIDI-OUT-Connection. Playing the song on the keyboard, we don't get any sound from track 17.

After converting the song to SMF0, we get a correct sound with the keyboard.

Example:
